Trip Planner: Africa / Tanzania / Zanzibar Archipelago / Zanzibar Island / Zanzibar Butterfly Centre
Walk among hundreds of free-flying butterflies in the tropical gardens of Zanzibar Butterfly Centre, one of the largest butterfly farms in East Africa. Netted in a large enclosure, butterflies are raised and exported, mostly to foreign museums. Get a close-up view of the life cycle stages of some of the butterflies, starting with their curious cocoons. A popular tourist attraction, the center hosts many exotic butterfly species. If you like what you see, you can buy some butterflies and have them shipped to you (after completing all the required paperwork). For travelers who use our international travel planner, Paje holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Zanzibar Butterfly Centre and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
